Another picture of this sweet hedgehog.
Here you can see it,while it was "running" to the forest near the street.
I think it was so afraid that we tried to help it to the forest so that it was running so fast to the place to hide.
First it was like dead, no movements and formed like a ball.
Then I think after few minutes it recognised that we aren´t the enemys,so it decided to run into the forest to his house.
This is thelast shot before the hedgehog was in the forest.Maybe you can see the eyes.They descibes the panic of it.
I hope you like it

Hello Tobias,

I know you from TL!
Here we have a beautiful animal and a photograph with nice colors and an excellent definition!

Hi Tobias,
süßes Kerlchen - wir haben auch von Zeit zu Zeit einen im Garten - ganz und gar zur "Freude" unserer Katze, denn der stachelige Geselle bekommt dann was von ihrem Futter, unmöglich!!! ;-)
Danke für das Bild, das Auge glänzt so schön.

Another interesting view of the hedgehog. You are fast man with the camera Toba!

Hello Tobias,

I haven't seen too many hedgehogs on TN, which is a pitty as they are fascinating creatures. This is a well taken shot; nice and sharp, natural colours and a great pov - you were either lying down or you're very short!

Kind regards,

Hello Tobias,
Happy to see you in TN. I see you have contributed some good shots for us Tns to see. Toads, butterflies and hedgehogs...hmmm pretty impressive. I like this picture of cute little hedgehog very much. You have manged to capture it with a catchlight in its eyes. And yes i can see the fear too in its eyes. Good shot with well saturated colours, sharpness and details.Very interesting notes that tell the story well.
Thanks for the share,
My belated welcome to TN, little friend.

Hello Tobias,
Good details in this cute little fellow!
Seem like he has noticed you, probably not so fond of being photographed...
I used to give them milk when I was a kid, later I have heard that is not so wise!
A fine composition...

:-) OK-

Hi Tobias
Nice image of very nice object. I like hedgehog very much.
Good detailed photo but in the background little bit unsharp (but I know that taking picture of moving creature that additionally has a lot of spikes is not easy).
I don't know if you have noticed that it has something attached close to its ear. It seems to be tick, but I'm not sure.
Best wishes

Hi Tobias.
Very nice picture with excellent diagonal low POV. The expression of the eyes is really amazing. I like excellent exposure, contrast and alive colours of the picture, excellent details and level of sharpness of the animal image. Well done and best regards.

Very cute little capture, with great catchlight. The focus is a bit soft, but a fine capture nonetheless

Hi Toba!

He is so nice! And this time the space around it is larger, it's more pleasant to look at it.

I also find it better because you put the animal in a slight diagonal.

Maybe you should watch sharpness or the depth. You could change the exposure, slow down a bit the speed and go up to f 5.6 or more if possible to increase depth.

As you can see, my English is not the best of all, too! But this doesn't matter!


Kind regards

Hello Tobias nice shot good catchlight in the eyes and fine detail tfs rgds Necip.

salut tobias
sur celle-ci,le herisson est un peu plus caché et c'est plus agreable d'avoir l'herbe comme environement,de plus la neteté est meilleure sur la tête.

Hello Tobias,
Hedgehog is always sweet and beautiful!
you captured well in low pov with good clarity, natural colour and details

was für ein süßer igel! :-)
schön, ihn laufend und 3-dimensional zu sehen, und nicht am straßenrand.
guter, niedriger blickwinkel, aug in aug.
bei 1/125 und f/3.8 lässt sich wahrscheinlich tiefenschärfenmäßig
nicht mehr viel anstellen, da die rückenpartie mit den stacheln
ein bisschen unscharf erscheint - ist nicht ganz so schlimm, da
das gesicht scharf ist, auch wenn die grashalme davor auch nicht so optimal sind.
jedenfalls, gut erwischt & weiter so, thor.

Hi Toba,
nice to see more shots of this hedgehog, they are endangered here in the UK and are quite hard to spot. Good low POV, maybe a bit more space towards the top of the frame would make it even better, but it is still a great shot.

Hola Toba.
Buenos detalles y magnífico encuadre.
Buena presentación y nota.
Saludos amigo, JL.

Hi Tobias

Very cute shot. It looks very natural with him peeking through the grass. I can't see the panic in his eyes but I know they do move fast when they want to. Nicely sharp (no pun intended) and lovely colours. Nice POV

Hello Tobias,
Very successful shot. Bautiful effect of bloodless hunt. Sccessful portrait of the hedgehog, animal which comes to life with autumn thus often seen is by us in forests and parks. Nce sharpness on eyes and the mouth, superb colours and good framing.
Best regards from solar Poznañ,

Hello Tobias,
an emotionally touching description coming with this very lively portrait of a hedgehog running for a hide. Quite apparently, this animal was moving quickly, and so it has been very clearly captured, well framed, without motion blur.
I like the pose and the glance of its eye.
Thank you! With best regards,

very cute indeed,very good details and focus.nicely framed.

Hello Tobias! Very good sharpness and lightness. Very good colors. Original composition. Nice effect. Good luck, my friend!

Lovely photo of this little hedgehog. We have very few of them left in Sweden nowadays, as they get killed by the traffic. It is so sad. Perfect and sharp photo. What do you call them in German, we call them igelkott in Swedish.

Hello Tobias

Hello Toba,
Excellent capture of a hedgehog going through the grass. I like the low POV and the angle caught with fine focusing to get the sharpness where it matters most.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Regards, Ivan

Hi Toba,
